Did I like the man? No.
Did I approve of what he thought and did? Absolutely not.
Will his passing allow the world to be a better place? Probably, unless his successors decide to turn the volume up to 11.
I do not want to be like him. That is why I will not celebrate his death, because he would certainly have privately rejoiced in mine, had he ever heard of me.
Making the same mistakes in reverse is not progress. It does not make us better.
I am ashamed of my counterculture tonight, and so deeply disappointed in certain individuals that I want to cry.
